Mohammad Shamim is a leading artist from the city of Dhaka,
Bangladesh. He has chosen Brixton Art Gallery for his first
has titled his exhibition 'Paradise'. In his own words:
Lost... Paradise Found...
our constant search for happiness, in our grasping at peace
and pleasure, are we lost? Have we found what we hoped to
find? Amidst our euphoria, are we disappointed? Because our
paradise is vulnerable? Because we are still unsure of what
will complete us?
these questions compel us to react...
chooses to confront his paradise with his canvas to let his
palette show him what he has lost and what he has found.
Urbanity-our constructed paradise- has a will of its own.
Once we have chosen to tango with our newfound paradise we
have never really been in total control. We have given in to
its seduction , and indulged in all its pleasures... gladly.
Oh, and how good it has been! It's just the morning after
that sometimes leaves us with a void that we would rather
not discuss... '
